* Brad and Jenny from ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' are meant to be only best friends however they're shipped more than Sheldon and Jenny, who were supposed to end up as the OfficialCouple if the show wasn't cancelled.

* Brad and Jenny from ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' are meant to be only best friends however they're shipped more than Sheldon and Jenny, who were supposed to end up as the OfficialCouple if the show wasn't cancelled. Doesn't help that a few episodes have implied Jenny has a bit of a crush on Brad while she rarely ever shows interest in Sheldon.

** Aang and Katara's relationship comes off as more familial than romantic at times as Katara acts as the mature TeamMom to the goofy KidHero Aang. The WillTheyOrWontThey aspect is dragged along and beaten to death until the very end of the series finale. Many fans of the show were actually surprised that the two turned out to be the OfficialCouple rather than a FalseRomanticLead or RedHerring and this is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] a couple of times throughout the series by the writers, most prominently in Ember Island Players where actress Katara says she loves Aang like a brother.
*** It doesn't help that Katara is a MasterOfTheMixedMessage and her huge attraction to Jet makes her feelings for Aang look strictly platonic in comparison.

* When ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' had a ContinuityReboot, one of the changes the writer and Sega decided to make was getting rid of the Sonic/Sally romance, since everyone had been getting sick of the [[RomanticPlotTumor Romantic Plot Tumors]] and shipping wars distracting from the plot. However with Sally and Sonic as JustFriends, fans began to see Sally as instead having some sort of budding romance with her supposedly platonic best friend Nicole. The two characters had some LesYay in the old continuity, but Sally had always been with Sonic so it was clear that the shippers were just wearing ShippingGoggles. Now Sally's available, and since her friendship with Nicole is also played up a lot more post-reboot, some readers thought that writer Ian Flynn was trying to set them up as a new OfficialCouple.

In spite of the fact that the creator has set two prominent [[OfficialCouple official couples]] (Cuddles/Giggles and Handy/Petunia), [[FanPreferredCouple a lot of fans still want to see Flippy/Flaky happening]]. There are many reasons this happened, but the most important ones are the fact that Flaky is the only one who has appeared to get closer to Flippy, becoming a potential good friend of him, which apparently determined him to stop killing her. She even made him return to his normal self once, although Flaky has developed a phobia for him and she has started running away from him in the latest episode. There is also the fact that Flaky, no gender according to {{WordOfGod}} in an interview that reveals that Flaky is asexual.
